Contractors License Overview

  • Washington D.C. Master/Journeyman Electrician
  • As a Master Electrician, you are able to develop and oversee wire system installations, acquire permits, and design the routing of circuits for installation. A master electrician also has the ability to serve as a supervisor to other journeymen or apprentices.
    Journeyman electricians have acquired the experience, knowledge, and training necessary to work independently, allowing them to gain even more experience and training in order to qualify for a master electrician license down the road. They work in commercial, industrial, and residential settings, where they are qualified to install, alter, add, and/or repair electrical systems, conductors, and associated materials and equipment. They have a full comprehension of the NEC and electrical theory. They often also supervise the work of apprentices.
    Electrical Apprenticeships are structured, regulated, and all-inclusive, consisting of at least 4-5 years of classroom study and on-the-job training (between 500 and 1,000 classroom hours and between 8,000 and 10,000 hours on-the-job). Although most apprenticeships include the classroom component, you may complete an electrician diploma or associate degree program beforehand, if desired, and satisfy all of the required classroom hours before beginning your apprenticeship.
